Police arrest 10 over Belgian 'Islamist terror plot'

Police in three countries have arrested 10 radical Islamists over a terrorist plot to attack Belgium, Belgian federal prosecutors say.

They were detained in police swoops in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany after a year-long investigation by police in the Belgian city of Antwerp.

TV footage has emerged of some of the suspects being detained in Antwerp.

The BBC's Jonty Blooms says the suspects may have communicated using the internet.
